re: Colt Possibly Selling to CZ Firearms
It's an embarrassment of riches with pistols these days. I prefer Walther ergonomics, but truly it's hard to go wrong with any of the listed weapons. Buy the one that fits you best.

Czech Republic is basically the second best country in the world to reside if you want to own a gun. And they're laws are getting even better. I know over the summer Their president wanted gun ownership to be a constitutional right there.

They have a commie-hating government and the Eatern bloc is about the last refuge left on earth that embodies real Western values and has not been totally infiltrated by Marxists.

If/when the shite hits the fan over here, I would have no problem living on the outskirts of Prague and carrying a CZ P10C loaded down with Sellier & Bellot ammo.

Colt without the military connection, however, seem irrelevant. They also charge way too much for their AR products for what you're getting and they don't seem have shook that M16 A1 design from their platforms.

This.

They also don't make a good striker fired polymer handgun.

And this as well.

How the hell Colt and Remington (I know, they've become utter garbage), two iconic American arms makers, aren't in the striker-fired/polymer/CCW market goes to show how terribly those companies have been run. There's no reason for either of them to not have a viable option in those sectors and they just don't. I know Remington put out the RP9 a while back, but it's on the level of a Hi Pernt but costs double.

I just don't get it. It's a damn shame how both of those brands have been driven into the ground.

re: Colt Possibly Selling to CZ Firearms
With Colt's history of small, concealable handguns, they should have been at the forefront of the CCW revutuon over the last 5-10 yrs.

It's simply stunning how they are totally and completely irrelevant in that market. They are still famous not for their AR-15, but for their 150+ year pistol heritage. They were lapped by smaller, non-American gun makers like Sig and Walther years ago and now get smoked by the likes of CZ, HK, FN, and others.

As for Remington, how that brand ever fell so so badly is on the Mt Rushmore of terrible management.

re: Colt Possibly Selling to CZ Firearms
The Czech laws were still kinda weird/ restrictive when I was there in November of 2019. I went to the CZ store in Prague and It was pretty cool to look at all their guns (especially the Bren 2 back before they were being imported to the US). Kinda sucked though since I couldn’t hold any of the guns because they said Czech laws prevent anyone from even handling a firearm without a license.

They CZ75s you have absolutely were Czexk made and imported as you said but

That's not true for the P10s . They do manufacture these in Kansas City. They opened the US manufacturing facility recently specifically for the P10. It makes sense for them to want to buy colt as it will be an easy way to expand US based manufacturing and boost production. They can barely keep up with demand, they sell out fast and curently most of their more popular models are on back order.

Thats the problem with basically every other country, but especially in Europe. You have to go through a long licensing process before you can do amything with a gun.

But, from what I understand, once you actually get a license there, you're pretty set. Some countries are much much more restrictive on their licensing though. I know some places only hand out a few hundred a year and give no reasoning for why someone did or didn't get one.

Amazingly, I think Brazil is starting to become a pretty gun friendly country as well. I know their present has made it where citizens can now own guns for home protection because the crime rate is so bad there, and it was obvious that most citizens not having a gun made it worse. At least now, there is some detterent.

Problem is, though, that in Brazil, like most countries, guns are so expensive that very few can afford to have them.
